Forget USC-ND: This is the Notre Dame game worth tuning in for. If there was ever a season where Navy had a chance to knock off the Irish, this is it. ND has won an NCAA series-record 43 straight games against Navy. They've done so in nine different stadiums, but this is the worst Irish team in that span. Their offense is horrible and their run defense isn't much better (93rd overall) and Navy has a very potent ground attack. The Irish have scored 80 points in the last two meetings in this series, which is exactly the same number of points the Irish have scored in their first seven games this season.
My thoughts? Heck, like I'm going to talk about this game a whole two and a half weeks before this game actually takes place and jinx our chances. I will, however, shamlessly plug my own work and nudge you with a "I saw it coming" nudge.
